Kovacic is back in training and set to make his injury comeback in this match

Mateo Kovacic is back in training after recovering from a hamstring injury he suffered in training before November’s international break.

Despite returning to training, Kovacic won’t be available for Wednesday’s Champions League game against Zenit in Russia.

As per Tom Roddy of the Times, Kovacic is set to be available for Chelsea at the weekend against Leeds United.

Kovacic has missed the last eight games as Chelsea dropped seven points and slipped off the top of the Premier League table without him.

The Croatian has been one of Chelsea’s best players this season and his return will be a huge boost for Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel.
